To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to RCW Ch. 42.56 (Public Records Act), I hereby request the following records:

It has come to my attention that SPD removes ALPR records from its internal database every 90 days and that a script was written
to perform the task, This request is for that script as well as any internal emails, interoffice mails or recorded communications which led to the creation and implementation of the script as well as any legal guidance which may have been solicited with regards to the deletion of those records.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

to whom it may concern,

I have gotten some unusual responses to this foia request, my foia request was P004523-082316 and I was told that it was a "duplicate" of "P003186-061716"
however, since "P003186-061716" is not publicly published anywhere I can find, so I am unable to confirm if you have correctly assessed my request as a duplicate.

please provide the contents of request P003186-061716 or respond to my request P004523-082316 as filed.
